The Doctor and the Princess – Book Review

 

The Doctor and the Princess by Scarlet Wilson

So I have this secret passion for royal romances… wait, what do you mean it’s not a secret?

*considers my Goodreads library*

OK, you might have a point there. All right, I have a not-at-all-secret passion for royal romances, but a distressingly high proportion of them are not very good. The last one I read (Pretend Princess) was absolutely dire.

The Doctor and the Princess is absolutely FANTASTIC. I loved the premise – a ‘spare’ princess, not wanting to be a mere ornament, becomes a doctor and goes to work for Doctors Without Borders, but her brother’s abdication of the crown suddenly dumps the job of Head of State unexpectedly on her shoulders. Right as she’s about to get hot and heavy with another doctor she met while on mission.
